    In the early Autumn of 2022, we had a two week holiday in West Wales and I took the opportunity to have a look at a number of old railways. I walked lengths of some and spent hours whiling away the time looking at old photos. This thread is the result and this is the first article which looks at transport prior to the railway age, with a significant focus on tramways/tramroads .....

    This next linked post (which for some reason has an abnormal URL) begins a short series of articles covering the industrial railways of Pembrokeshire. So far, I have identified a number of industrial lines including:

    • The Saundersfoot Railway (covered in a later article)

    • The Milford Haven Docks Railways

    • The Milford & St. Bride's Bay Light Railway and proposals for expansion of the Docks at Milford Haven

    • The Royal Navy Armaments Depot at Newton Noyes (RNMD Milford Haven)

    • The Royal Navy Armaments Depot at Trecwn (RNAD Trecwn) (covered in a later article)

    • Milford Haven Oil Refineries

    • The Freystrop Colliery Railway.

    • The Hook Colliery Railway.

    Those in the immediate vicinity of Milford Haven are reviewed in the linked article below:

    Pembrokeshire again. ... The Porthgain Clifftop Tramway

    I have heard from a few people that I have not covered the Clifftop Tramway at Porthgain, Pembrokeshire. Here is a short article about the line. ...

    http://rogerfarnworth.com/2022/10/29/porthgain-clifftop-tramway/

    Much of this article is summarised from a book by R.C. Jermy - "The Railways of Porthgain and Abereiddi."
